Just 2 km south of the airport, this beach community has somehow remained relatively underground. (Except we just gave it away!) The island’s unofficial capital of kiteboarding and tourist-free adventures, Nai Yang Beach is the new hot spot on Phuket.
The colourful salas (open-sided pavilions) and rows of fishing boats lining Nai Yang Beach make a great backdrop for your upcoming R&R. Stake your claim (and your umbrella) in the sand and stretch out to catch some rays, then get refreshed with a lunch of mee hokkien (seafood stir-fry) and fresh coconut water at the nearby sala. We bet just reading that made you feel a little more relaxed.
Unwind even more with beach yoga and Thai cooking classes, which are sure to help you find your Zen. Is your happy place out on the open ocean, rather than at the bottom of a big pot of satay sauce? Learn a new sport on your Nai Yang Beach holiday that will really impress your friends. This town is the centre of the kiteboarding scene on Phuket, complete with schools to show you the ropes—or bridles and loops, in the proper terminology.
At Nai Yang Saturday Market, grab a snack of fresh dragonfruit and get shopping. Pick up coconut hotcakes, palm sugar sweets and super-cheap fresh peanuts for your friends (or for those late-night munchies). For non-food-related souvenirs, just wander down Nai Yang Beach Road. You might find anything from turquoise jewellery to colourful handwoven tapestries. Don’t worry—Wotif’s Nai Yang Beach car hire options make it easy to carry all those finds back to your hotel.
Phuket is well-known for its seafood, and Nai Yang Beach is no exception. Dig your toes in the sand and your fork into delicious Thai specialties like tom yam talay (hot-and-sour seafood soup) and zesty lime Asian seabass. Nai Yang Beach packages make it easy to kick off those thongs and relax to the sound of rustling casuarina trees and ocean waves. Helpful hint: “Mai pet!” means “Not spicy”!
Nai Yang Beach holidays are known for their laid-back beachy vibe, but there are places to get down if the mood strikes. Nai Yang Beach Road is the centre of the action, with waterfront bars, resort lounges and beach clubs that keep the party going both day and night. The true name of the game, however, is chillin’ out. Your private, waterfront meals definitely lead nicely to post-dinner walks on the beach, quiet stargazing and roasting marshmallows around a bonfire.
Phuket may be a popular holiday destination, but parts of it remain unexplored by the masses. Check out Nai Yang Beach deals on Wotif and discover one of these rare locations for yourself. Mix and match airfares and accommodation to create a getaway that’s all yours—literally. Nai Yang’s uncharted beaches, bustling markets and friendly locals are ready to show you why Thailand is the “Land of Smiles”.
